If your front cap is oxidizing, you need to notify Jayco immediately (firstname.lastname@example.org, so that you have documented the issue with them. Include your Contact information, clear pictures and you VIN. I was one of the first ones that had their cap serviced under the Jayco warranty. The caps are not painted, they used a gel coat, which can not be painted over so they need to sand down the gel coat
to the fiberglass and prep that for a paint job. Paint does not adhere to gel coat over time.
Jayco will ask you how you maintained the cap.. mine was washed and waxed about 3 time in year one so they were happy. I told them that the oxidation would not come off.
After you report your issue to Jayco, they will tell you to take it to an AUTHORIZED Jayco service center (that does body work) and they will confirm it and they will contact Jayco with the status. Jayco will contact them with the authorization to do the work on the cap.
Jayco will notify you and the service center will contact you to set up an appointment.
The sooner you care for this the better.
We opted to have the cap repainted to the SAME color as the side of the TT. Best thing we did. The dark cap reached temperatures above 200 degrees in the sun, where as the lighter cap has maxed out at 119 degrees in the sun.. making it a lot cooler on the inside.
Jayco said that they would do the work but not warranty the paint as it was not the SAME DARK COLOR, no problem the Jayco dealer service center warrantied the paint for 5 years. 3 more than Jayco.
Here is a link to what the cap looks like now:

One last item, the decals on the sides of the cap (on the EAGLE 284BHS) are NOT included in the cap decal package, but are part of the side decal package.. so both need to be ordered when the work is done.
No cost for the re-painting except time and gas.
